WavDad is a spin-off product from CatchDad. All the same controls but instead of recording sounds on the fly you load a sample. We made it cause the thought of being able to build up an entire live set from scratch programming your drums and rhythms on the fly on stage is very appealing. We might continue to develop this little thing but put it on ice for now. Use it if you like it, if enough people ask for further development it might happen.

Do you need another VSTi? OH HELL YES!

Version 2 of our angry old fart is out and he’s still mad as hell!

Burt are built around a traditional chain of subtractive synthesis but Instead of the traditional way with a nice and clean signal chain Burt adds distortion or exaggerate the signal in every step of the signal path. So even if you start off with a clean sine wave you might end up with something completely different and might even not hear any difference if you change to a saw or square. But be sure of one thing; it will sound like no other synth you heard before!
Call it waveshaping or oscillation by distortion if you like… We call it Burt!

Mattias Fridell:

-“The first thing that struck me was the raw and aggressive look, which of course appealed to me immediately! After about 15 minutes I realized its enormous potential in the heavy and gritty bass line department. But Burt is not restricted to creating gritty bass lines; its also perfect for hypnotic mono lines a couple of octaves up thanks to the exceptional portamento and LFO.”
